  • Introduction to Genomic Variant Interpretation

    6 - 7 April 2020

    Sheffield, United Kingdom

    Introduction to Genomic Variant Interpretation https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-genomic-variant-interpretation This course covers state-of-the-art and best-practice tools for the analysis of genomes. We describe, and give hands-on experience of, the entire analysis workflow from raw data generated by a sequencing machine to deriving variant calls (e.g. Single Nucleotide Variants) that are ready for downstream analysis, interpretation and prioritisation. We will describe the steps involved to go from sequencing library to a prioritised, clinically-relevant list of DNA variants. Practical sessions will use the user-friendly Galaxy interface (https://usegalaxy.org/) to demonstrate tasks such as alignment, quality control, variant-calling and annotation. 2020-04-06 08:30:00 UTC 2020-04-07 16:00:00 UTC Bartolome House, Seminar Room EG03, Sheffield, United Kingdom Bartolome House, Seminar Room EG03 Sheffield United Kingdom S3 7ND [] bioinformatics-core@sheffield.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []

  • ELIXIR Bioinformatics Industry Forum

    28 April 2020

    London, United Kingdom

    ELIXIR Bioinformatics Industry Forum https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/elixir-bioinformatics-industry-forum To avoid the risk of attendees being exposed to or infected with Coronavirus (COVID-19), quarantined or restricted in their travel, we have made the decision to change the ELIXIR Bioinformatics Industry Forum and move from a face-to-face meeting to a series of virtual events.    With the ELIXIR Bioinformatics Industry Forum we want to build a community for technical specialists to discuss visionary ideas, bottlenecks and solutions to some of the major challenges in the data driven life science sector. What unites all participants is the drive to move science forward through a collaborative effort. Follow-on Webinars  Exploiting semantics web technology for a service cross-talk between companies; Blanca Jordan (Atos) Sira Sarntivijai (ELIXIR)    5th May 2020   Open source Software in the Life Sciences; Alex Wade (Chan Zuckerberg Initiative) Jen Harrow (ELIXIR Tools)   28th May 2020  Large scale cloud computing in the life sciences; Chair: Jonathan Tedds (ELIXIR Compute) Philipp Maurer (Google Cloud) Tony Wildish (EMBL-EBI) Diana Coman (ETH Zurich/ BioMedIT)   23rd June 2020   2020-04-28 14:00:00 UTC 2020-04-28 14:00:00 UTC Virtual Event, London, United Kingdom Virtual Event London United Kingdom NW1 2BE [] [] [] meetings_and_conferences [] []
  • RNA-seq Analysis for Beginners

    13 May 2020

    Sheffield, United Kingdom

    RNA-seq Analysis for Beginners https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/rna-seq-analysis-for-beginners-910fd563-0c77-49c8-9f3a-878af00ba1b9 High-throughput RNA-sequencing is now the standard technique for quantifying transcript abundance in a biological sample of interest. In this course we will describe the processes that take place once you submit a library for RNA sequencing, and what data you should expect to receive from the Bioinformatics Core. We will describe the steps involved to go from sequencing library to a list of genes that show statistically significant differences between your biological conditions of interest. Practical sessions will use the user-friendly Galaxy interface (https://usegalaxy.org/) to demonstrate tasks such as alignment, quality control and assessing differential expression. We will also showcase some web sites you can use for enrichment and pathways analysis. 2020-05-13 08:30:00 UTC 2020-05-13 16:00:00 UTC Bartolome House, Seminar Room EG03, Sheffield, United Kingdom Bartolome House, Seminar Room EG03 Sheffield United Kingdom S3 7ND [] bioinformatics-core@sheffield.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []

  • Introduction to RNA-seq analysis in R

    13 - 14 July 2020

    Sheffield, United Kingdom

    Introduction to RNA-seq analysis in R https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-rna-seq-analysis-in-r-34ffdcbc-a5b7-49ac-afb9-7d338a38ea26 In this workshop, you will be learning how to analyse RNA-seq count data, using R. This will include reading the data into R, quality control and performing differential expression analysis and gene set testing, with a focus on the edgeR analysis workflow. You will learn how to generate common plots for analysis and visualisation of gene expression data, such as boxplots and heatmaps. You will also be learning how alignment and counting of raw RNA-seq data can be performed in R. This workshop is aimed at biologists interested in learning how to perform differential expression analysis of RNA-seq data when reference genomes are available.. 2020-07-13 08:30:00 UTC 2020-07-14 16:00:00 UTC The Diamond, Workroom 1, Sheffield, United Kingdom The Diamond, Workroom 1 Sheffield United Kingdom S3 7RD [] bioinformatics-core@sheffield.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
